The Carlsons | Hovander Park Family Photos

There are some people you encounter in life who are inspiring just because of the authentic, deep-rooted person that they naturally are. Jess is one of those people for me. She lives her ordinary life with an extraordinary heart, with a depth of love and joy that is open to everyone she comes into contact…

Tyler + Jade | Lairmont Manor Wedding

Nestled away in the neighborhoods of old Fairhaven, Lairmont Manor might just be the most classically beautiful wedding venue in Whatcom County.

Russell + Cassandra | Semiahmoo Sunrise Engagement Photos

I know it’s backwards to post an engagement session after the wedding, but oh well! There’s no way I could NOT share this session. Sunrise photos on the Semiahmoo beachfront – how amazing is that?? These two got up at 4am to meet me the day before their wedding, and it was totally worth it!…

North + Caroline | Bellingham Wedding Photography

There were so many gorgeous moments throughout North & Caroline’s wedding day that it took me forever to put this blog together just for the difficulty of choosing what to put in! Spring Time Farm served as the rustic garden backdrop, and a plethora of handmade creamy wildflower bouquets dotted every surface. Nearly every detail…

Russell + Cassandra | Whatcom Falls Adventure Wedding

I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of weddings for 17 years now, and in all of that time I’ve never been a part of an experience like what Russ & Cass put together. They flew in from Colorado for a PNW adventure wedding on top of a waterfall, and because Russell has always…

Joyful, humble, purposeful, dedicated, adventurous, easygoing; the first of many words that come to mind when I think about Josh and Emily.

Gabe + Rachel | Hotel Sorrento Seattle Urban Wedding

Between the gorgeous historic Hotel Sorrento in downtown Seattle and the incredible architectural design of the Chapel of St. Ignatius on Seattle University’s campus, this urban wedding was practically iconic from start to finish. I couldn’t get over every beautiful, texturized, light-drenched detail. And you couldn’t find a better couple to be hosting their close…

The Karuzas are literally one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever met. And Ashley should be a home designer, with how gorgeous she’s decorated every room of their house. This lifestyle newborn session was an absolute dream!

The Richardsons | Hovander Park Family Mini

I love my family mini sessions at Hovander Park – there is so much to explore, and with kids this age a half an hour is often the most that they’re up for. I have been so lucky to photograph this super sweet family from the beginning – all the way back to Cody &…

Baby Owen | Bellingham Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Having celebrated their engagement, wedding and first baby with them, I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to capture Aaron & Brenna’s first few days with the newest addition to the sweet Fox family.

The Hopkins | Hovander Park Family Mini

My friend Kristen, who was also my son’s amazing kindergarten teacher, was expecting her second bundle of incredible energy a couple of months ago and I jumped at the chance to take them all out to Hovander Park after school for a short family/maternity mini photo sesson. I love this family!
